Vulcan 7

Vulcan 7

★★★☆☆   Mixed bag:

There are some brilliantly imaginative elements to the touring production of Vulcan 7 at the King’s. Unfortunately, none of them are in the script.

Singin’ In The Rain – Review

✭✭✭✭✭ A bigger splash

There is more than the promised 12,000 litres of water covering the stage at the Festival Theatre – spectacle, enjoyment and sheer old-fashioned good fun come flooding in too.
